Two hundred forty samples were collected randomly and distributed as follows :80 muscle samples 80 kidney samples and 80 liver samples) which were collected from 80 Male Sheep Carcasses (1-2 years age) in lattakia, tartous, jableh and safita regiones samples were examined for detection contamination by Arsenic Element using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). The results showed concentration of Arsenic in Male Sheep of kidney, liver, and muscle in lattakia region (0.478, 0.4095 and 0.26) mg/kg respectively, and in jableh region (0.462, 0.3835 and 0.2695) mg/kg respectively, and in Tartous region (0.478, 0.4095 and 0.283) mg/kg respectively, and in safita region (0.4525,0.35 and 0.248) mg/kg respectively. Results confirmed increased in the contamination level by Arsenic in Kidney liver and Muscle in order first in lattakia and tartous more than jableh and safita regions, Muscles and livers and kidneys samples In all regions were within Permissible limit (1mg/kg).
